Now, more than forty years later, the surviving crew members reunite to reenact and recollect their experience. What results is a document of the thin line between science and cultism in the early ‘70s, a touching story of female camaraderie and, in the character of Mexican anthropologist Santiago Genové an unforgettable portrait of oblivious, toxic masculinity.
